very nice list there lefty. ten years after is one of the most underrated bands to ever play. alvin lee is such a phenomenal talent, with unbelievable passion and stage presence as well. i instantly fell in love after seeing this when i was a young teen:

you can't more correct on this one. I actually had a personal connection w/ them as I knew their manager Dee Anthony whose family was from neighborhood in the Bx.Besides the Dead who I saw aprox 28x including free gigs and benefits and Tuna easily over 30 I think I easily saw TYA over 15x w/o a bad or even a slowww show. As for the Who playing rings around the Dead on Sat I'm sticking by it w/ a priviso that I do understand that the Dead were better Sunday. Yes the Who's set was kind of a chronilogical greatest hits pkg w/ 20 minutes of Tommy included but since I only saw them this one time That's my story and I'm sticking by it.

w/ a priviso...well ok! I have that 10/9 Who Show and the 2nd set go's waaaay out there, ok, not the same 2 shows, my privosa on yer chin haha. I went on sunday, so my scorn went. sorry. I saw the Who close. They were aware of and up to the challenge of a largely deadhead crowd, imo and did well. The 10/9 GD show was very well played, sunday is my fav, but thats prob because i was there. peace
